Yehuda = Lion #hungary

Georges Graner
 

Dear Siggers,
It is interesting to find that people with the name Yehuda Leyb took
secular names such as Lipot, Leopold or Leo.
The explanation is to be found in the Bible, Genesis 49.
There Jacob's son Juda or Yehuda is compared to a lion. Therefore the
two names Juda and Lion are considered as completely equivalent given
names, at least in French Jewry. Later, these given names became
family names such as LION, LYON, LOEWE
For similar reasons, Nephtali was compared to a doe, hence HIRSCH, CERF ...
Also Issachar is linked to a Bear (BEHR, BEER....) and Benjamin to a
Wolf (WOLFF......).
These explanations can be found, among other places in
www.genealoj.org . Click on "English Version" and on "Jewish Names".

Regards

Georges GRANER (Paris, France)

Moderator: Please limit comments on names to those that are particularly relevant to Hungarian Jews.

Subject: Re: Yiddish name question:
From: "Iris Graicer" <irisgr@zahav.net.il>

Steve Low asked about the name Leibush [ in Hebrew letters ] on his
great-grandfather tombstone:

Leibish, Leiybush, are all niknames in Yyddish for the same name - Leib .
The meaning in English is "Life". It arrives >from the German/Yiddish -
Leben.
There is another similar Jewish name in Yiddish - Laib "lion", in Hungary or
Romania - Leo,
and in Yiddish the names relates to it are Laibush, Laibysh, .
Hebrew letters Laibush or Leibush are written the same [ lamed, yod,
bet,vav, shin ] .
How do you know if it is Leibush or Laibush when written in Hebrew ?
you don't !!! Hebrew has only 22 letters, there are no A,E.O.U, letters,
instead ,
there are dots under the letters to help with the pronouncation.
So, the same spelling can be pronounced differently.
When Steve's great-grandfather was burried everybody in the family knew his
name and how to say it, Leibush or Laibush, [ Life or Lion ] they didn't
need the dots.
As his name in Rumanian was Leo-pold [ lion ] there is a chance that it was
Laibysh and not Leibysh.

Mt. Ararat Cemetery Searchable Datbase is now online #poland #warsaw

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings all,

As promised, I am notifying everyone that the fourth in a series of five new
searchable cemetery databases is now online. The cemetery is Mt. Ararat
Cemetery. It is located in Lindenhurst, Suffolk County, New York, though its
mailing address is in Farmingdale. The cemetery (founded in 1929, first
burial 1933) contains more than 45,000 burials but no society plots. This
means that using the www.jgsny.org database in order to locate a particular
landsmanshaft plot will not be useful for this cemetery.

You can search by first name, surname, date of death (not date of burial),
section number, range number, and lot number. The results for each
individual search are still limited to 200 entries and are displayed
alphabetically, e.g. if you just search using the surname COHEN, you will
get the first two hundred entries of a total of six-hundred and fifty COHEN
entries in their database. The first entry is Aaron COHEN, and the last is
Frieda COHEN. If you know no other pertinent information about the deceased
other than their first and last names, and use are looking for a COHEN whose
first name begins with a letter further down in the alphabet, you can use
their first name and surname to find who you're looking for. Or you can,
e.g, enter COHEN into the last name field, and then, plug in the letters J
through Z individually in the first name field, to find who you're looking
for.

The URL for the Mt. Ararat Cemetery site is www.mountararatcemetery.com .
The last in a series of five searchable cemetery databases will be for Mt.
Judah in Ridgewood, Queens, New York, though I wouldn't count on this site
being online for at least a couple of months. I will, of course, spread the
word once this database is online. I know of no other cemetery that has
plans to create a searchable database for their burials.

The first three searchable cemetery databases in this series that were
created are:
Mt. Hebron Cemetery (Flushing, Queens, New York):
www.mounthebroncemetery.com
Mt. Carmel Cemetery (Ridgewood, Queens, New York):
www.mountcarmelcemetery.com
Mt. Zion Cemetery (Maspeth, Queens, New York): www.mountzioncemetery.com
Also, another searchable cemetery database (but not part of this series):
Mt. Moriah Cemetery (Fairview, New Jersey):
www.mountmoriahcemeteryofnewjersey.org

Please remember that within the Cemetery Project section of my own website
(www.museumoffamilyhistory.com), there exists a cemetery directory, with
cemetery contact information, as well as nearly one-hundred maps of
forty-five cemeteries that are located in New York, New Jersey, South
Florida, Chicago, Los Angeles and Montreal. There is more than this, so you
should check the table of contents on the Site Map page for information on
other content that might be of interest to you.
Happy hunting!

Politechnika Warszawska students #warsaw #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I recently posted that the Warsaw University of Technology Digital Library
scanned and placed online the Politechnika Warszawska's academic plan for
1937/1938, which includes a list of students for the previous academic year,
some of them very likely Jewish, judging >from their names. Since that post,
the Digital Library has done the same for other years' academic plans, and
the collection now covers 1934/1935-1938/1939. It appears that this will be
extended to 1916-1946, though it is not clear that all years will be
included or that all of the plans will include lists of students.

I will not report on these plans further, but encourage anyone who is
interested to periodically check the Digital Library's website
(http://bcpw.bg.pw.edu.pl/dlibra). The plans can be found by using the
website's Simple Search to search for the word semestrze, and the lists of
students have been near the ends of the plans.

More about the Mt. Ararat Cemetery searchable database #lodz #poland

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

This is just a follow-up on my previous posting about the new searchable
database available on the new Mt. Ararat Cemetery
website(www.mountararatcemetery.com.) I just returned >from a short visit to
the cemetery in search of some answers, and I wanted to share them with you,
anticipating that questions regarding these matters will probably come up at
some point. Here we go:

1. Some of you will undoubtedly discover that there are dates of death
listed on this database >from as early as 1910. The office manager at Mt.
Ararat checked a few of these burial records for me, and he found that they
were, for the most part, reinterments >from other cemeteries. There is no
mention of this when you look at any of these burial listings, but now you
know. Also, even though the web site states that the first interment at the
Mt. Ararat was 1933, it was really 1931.

2. If you do a search just using the year of death of 1909, you will find
481 entries with the same date of death, 1/1/1910. You will also get the
same list of names if you do a search just using the year 1910. This
1/1/1910 date is the default setting and is not meant to indicate that the
person's date of death was 1/1/1910. Either the cemetery had no date of
death for these individuals in their computer before the data was uploaded
to the new website, and it defaulted to this same date, or there was some
other reason for it. Either way, if you happen to find a name of interest in
this database with a date of death of 1/1/1910, contact the cemetery for the
correct date. Again, you will find dates of death for a small number of
entries before 1931, but as I've said, these are most likely all
disinterments/reinterments.

3. Regarding planting, care, etc., there are no plants or vegetation (just
grass) on any of the graves in this cemetery, just shrubs, etc. in between
family headstones, on one or both sides of the stone. Also, there are no
individual matzevot (gravestones), i.e. the cemetery permits only family
headstones, one per family. So typically you will have one headstone with
the family surname(s) inscribed on it and, in the minority of cases, symbols
that indicate whether the deceased were Cohains, Levites or Israelites. You
will generally find footstones made of granite for each individual burial.
Because of the small size of these footstones, the information on them is
limited. You will find the deceased's first name, surname, dates of birth
(when available) and death, perhaps in only fifty-percent of the burials the
Hebrew name of the deceased and their father, and a few words, e.g. beloved
wife-devoted mother and grandmother. No other significant inscriptions per
se. Lastly, there are sections in this cemetery that don't even allow for a
family headstone, and you there you will find individual footstones only.

4. The cemetery says that they are not really "set up" for taking gravestone
photos. They will consider taking photos on an individual basis (no charge),
especially for those who already own plots.

5. So remember that you will find errors in this database, just like all the
others. Please give them plenty of time to work out the kinks.

I hope these notes will help those of you who have an interest in those who
are buried at Mt. Ararat Cemetery.

families LEWINSKI, JAKUBOWICZ, AKERMAN, ABERSZTAJN #lodz #poland

Richard J. Astor <richardastor@...>
 

dear fellow Lodz genners:-

I am researching my paternal relations ABERSZTAJN and wonder if anyone can
help.

(1) my great-aunt Estera ABERSZTAJN (b.1850), of Poddebice/Sieradz, married
(~1884) Icek GARBACZ vel LEWINSKI of Blaszki. she brought to that marriage a
son, Zelik (b. february 4, 1880, Sieradz), >from her previous marriage (to
Zelik SZERKOWSKI of Sieradz; d.1879/80). so i'm looking for Zelik LEWINSKI
and his family.

(2) my great-aunt Sura ABERSZTAJN (b.1870), of Sieradz and Lodz, married
(1900) Lejzor AKERMAN (b.1876) of Slawno (Wolanowskie). they lived in
Lodz-Baluty. so i'm looking for my great-aunt's AKERMAN family.

(3) my cousin Estera ABERSZTAJN (b.1898; died chelmno 1942), of Lodz,
married (1925) Abram Salomon JAKUBOWICZ (b. ~1896). they had a son, Pawel (?
Fajwel; b. march 15, 1928). all three were in the lodz ghetto. so i'm
looking for Pawel / Fajwel JAKUBOWICZ and his family.

(4) Ajzek ABERSZTAJN (b.1915), of Lodz, married, ~1936-7, Helena xxxxxxxx
(her maiden name is illegible). they had a son, Josef, b.~1937/8. Ajzek went
off to fight in the Polish Army and Helena and Josef have not been heard of.
apparently they were not in the lodz ghetto. perhaps she married again. so
i'm looking for Helena and Josef ABERSZTAJN -- but she probably acquired
another married name during the war or shortly after, if she survived.

any help on any of my family wld be most gratefully received. thank you.

dear fellow Lodz genners:-

I am researching my paternal relations ABERSZTAJN and wonder if anyone can
help.

(1) my great-aunt Estera ABERSZTAJN (b.1850), of Poddebice/Sieradz, married
(~1884) Icek GARBACZ vel LEWINSKI of Blaszki. she brought to that marriage a
son, Zelik (b. february 4, 1880, Sieradz), >from her previous marriage (to
Zelik SZERKOWSKI of Sieradz; d.1879/80). so i'm looking for Zelik LEWINSKI
and his family.

(2) my great-aunt Sura ABERSZTAJN (b.1870), of Sieradz and Lodz, married
(1900) Lejzor AKERMAN (b.1876) of Slawno (Wolanowskie). they lived in
Lodz-Baluty. so i'm looking for my great-aunt's AKERMAN family.

(3) my cousin Estera ABERSZTAJN (b.1898; died chelmno 1942), of Lodz,
married (1925) Abram Salomon JAKUBOWICZ (b. ~1896). they had a son, Pawel (?
Fajwel; b. march 15, 1928). all three were in the lodz ghetto. so i'm
looking for Pawel / Fajwel JAKUBOWICZ and his family.

(4) Ajzek ABERSZTAJN (b.1915), of Lodz, married, ~1936-7, Helena xxxxxxxx
(her maiden name is illegible). they had a son, Josef, b.~1937/8. Ajzek went
off to fight in the Polish Army and Helena and Josef have not been heard of.
apparently they were not in the lodz ghetto. perhaps she married again. so
i'm looking for Helena and Josef ABERSZTAJN -- but she probably acquired
another married name during the war or shortly after, if she survived.

any help on any of my family wld be most gratefully received. thank you.

Re: Bialystok records #general

Does anyone know if the Catholic records prior to 1835 exist for the town of
Bialystok. The FH website only lists that they have 1834. Where are the other
earlier years to try find Jewish entries?

Thanks
